Showers of Love for Baby with Cuttlebug "Be Inspired #79"



We are just so excited to share this week ideas with you. We at Cuttlebug Challenge are avid givers, if there's such a word. LOL
We create most of these delectable, unique projects and give them to others, so we can put a smile on their faces!!!!

Speaking of smiles, there's nothing better than welcoming a new little one into the family.. or celebrating with a friend on their happy blessed event!

Creating a gift item for the upcoming event, and decorating using our stashes... what can be more personal and special?????

It's such a happy time when a baby is coming, and the perfect excuse to throw a party!

Today we start the celebrations with fun ideas for
invitations, decorations, favors, and cards, and gifts for Mommy and Baby, and some goodies for the baby's album, and...and...and...


Did you happen to see Shantaie and Terrie's amazing tutorial on Monday?

Be sure to come back on Friday for Tammy's terrific video about baby for Fab Friday!

Oh, I do get SO excited when there's a new little one coming!! Don't you????

I had two new additions to the family, one in Jan & one in Feb... I made a little brag album for one and a framed 12x12 page for the other... They are not baby shower gifts they are welcome to the world gifts...not sure if that counts. I have linked both.

Aubrey said...

I'm 14 years old and started making cakes last summer. In the short year that I've been making cakes, I have made about 50, juggling school and playing on the High School softball team. Within the past few months, the orders have been flooding in! If I won the Cricut, I'd be able to experiment with cakes so much more! Everyday I'm looking for new ideas and techniques to use, and the Cricut seems to be the new hot item. I want to do this for the rest of my life and having the Cricut would make me one step closer to success! :)
Thanks,
Aubrey Sanders
